BTW, I'm a big Bobby fan, love his guitar fills. Great songs - Sugar Mag, Estimated, WRS, Jack Straw, One More Sat Night, etc. etc.

Bobby and the Midnites... let's not go there.

Bobby and the Midnites... LETS go there. As the band which featured Billy Cobham and Alphonso Johnson that toured with Brent was really damn good - better than a lot of Dead that followed in the next few years. I can't say anything for studio releases (what's new?), but that was a real fun band live. MUCH better than Ratdog.

Yeah, I was sorta surprised to read that comment...again, my little sister saw them a lot, with a couple of the guys from the DEAD cover band I've mentioned (ie, they knew their music if you will), and they loved them.

In fact, the bass player and my little sister ranked one Keystone show of theirs (B&MNs) as, respectively, "the best live show I ever attended!" which was esp telling for the bass player that saw lots of shows from 72 on, incl many famous 72 and 73 shows by the DEAD, etc. My little sister only ever went to DEAD shows and Bob band shows, so less variation for her...

I just never happened to make it...

whether you liked Bobby and the Midnights is going again be a little matter of taste . I do know that Billy Cobham
is one of the best drummers in the world. That my friends
is not my bold statement but by other pro drummers. I thought when I saw them they were very tight polished
and had clear sense of direction. You can't say that for many Dead shows. Would I see them multiple times, no but that does not mean they didn't entertain me for that night.

I saw Bobby and the Midnights several times. My favorite nights were the ones when they opened for Jerry’s band.

I have to edit this – no disrespect meant towards Billy Cobham, known him for a good long time. (Alphonso either.)
